Interesting read into the lives of three individuals time with the UN and Red Cross, however, I felt that the woman's story and POV via Heidi Postlewait was highly sexualised (perhaps a factor of her real experience with the UN). I found myself wanting to understand more about the situations she found herself in.
Perhaps I am only disturbed as I myself am considering some field work for an NGO and hearing these stories hit too close to home.
I was most intrigued by the story of Andrew Thomson, the UN Doctor from New Zealand.
A book that is both beautiful and haunting. Something to put a serious fear of marriage and suburbia into one's mind... perhaps never to be able to think of these institutions without passing over Music For Torching.
